Chuvash (Чӑвашла, transliterated as Căvašla or Çovaşla) belongs to the Turkic language family, and more precisely to the Oghur branch, of which it is the last living language. It is spoken in the Chuvash Republic, or Chuvashia, in the Russian Federation, where it is co-oficial with Russian, by the Chuvash people, and counts about 1 million speakers. Chuvash can be written in Latin alphabet or in Cyrillic alphabet.
Transliteration system: ISO 9
The international standard ISO 9 establishes a system for the transliteration into Latin characters of Cyrillic characters constituting the alphabets of many Slavic and some non-Slavic languages. This system is univocal, as one character is represented by one equivalent character (by the use of diacritics), which represents the original spelling and allows for reverse transliteration (or retroconversion). The first versions of the standard were based on the scholarly system, but the latest version, ISO:1995, emphasizes the unambiguity of the transliteration instead of the phonemic representation.
